We spent more than an hour wandering round the old church exploring the 31 monuments and the early medieval sculpture. Also the Viking hogback stones and the Govan Sarcophagus which is amazing.

The church is quite hidden, but not hard to find. However, you can walk past it and never notice. Anyway, the church itself really spacious and cozy. And it also has a collection of archeological stones. The church is near the subway station, so you don't need to walk hours to see it.

Home of the legendary hogbacks - a couple of which were borrowed by the British Museum in London for a recent exhibition. Stunning stained glass, rich in history. Tour guides are vounteers who have a wealth of knowledge- brilliant visit!

Well worth a visit the church is really quite nice but the stone carvings are the really good part. The statues are really amazing and you could easily miss this place. Also worth watching the time team episode about the stones.
